Singapore finds radioactivity in imported Japanese vegetables

SINGAPORE - SINGAPORE said on Thursday its authorities had found low levels of radioactive contaminants in four samples of vegetables imported from Japan. It said samples of wild parsley, rapeseed plant, mustard and perilla leaf were found to have elevated levels of radiation, although an adult would have to consume 3.5kg of these vegetables to receive a similar amount of radiation as one X-ray. The contaminated samples were imported from the affected prefectures of Tochigi and Ibaraki, as well as Chiba and Ehime which are outside the affected areas. Earlier on Thursday, Singapore suspended the import of milk, meat and produce from areas near Japan's crippled nuclear power plant due to worries of radiation contamination. -- REUTERS
